    She's got a bit of North in it so I think Buller may actually fair best out of this. I think NSW resorts may be robbed here tonight - just a hunch though.

    6C drop in 3 mins (WTF:eek:) for Frankston half an hour ago. That squall line is lighting up on the radar.

    Good build-up to the north of Melbourne on the radar now (between Bendigo & Seymour). Next stop Vicco alps.
    Going to want to make it count as this looks to hold the majority of the snowfall tonight IMO.

    Just ask the grape growers. Grapes are ripening on average 1 to 2 days early per year, every year over the last 20 years. Smart growers are going up slope or heading south.

    Sorry, off topic but nature has spoken. Will we listen......

    Does that marry up with the continental drift north?

    Nothing more than a dusting on South Perisher cam, but still looks like some flurries.
    Buller with 6mm registered in the gauge, Falls and Baw Baw with 4mm.

    ...tha-tha-tha that's all folks...

    Definitely more than 4cm on the cedarwood cam. I'm suggesting roughly double that.

    LM reporting only 2cm.
    What's happened to the southerly systems this year? All these NW & W systems favour the nothern resorts. :(

    Beautiful morning but a disappointing system, particularly considering the heavy rain of Tuesday night. Oh well, time to get out there

    A dusting here in Smiggins overnight at best. Not enough to even hold on the balcony. Snow guns are firing again at least.
    Will need to search hard for that 3cm today....;)

    Falls done pretty well to get 10cm

    TableOmeter at Cedarwood says thats about right.
    Nice to have a freshen up for my arrival tomorrow.

    Hopefully a few showers can push up this arvo and drop a coulpe more cm's before it clears
